Murray to meet Djokovic in Shanghai Masters final
SHANGHAI (AP) — Two-time defending champion Andy Murray beat Roger Federer 6-4, 6-4 in the Shanghai Masters on Saturday, setting up a rematch of the U.S. Open final against Novak Djokovic.
Djokovic reached his 10th final of the season when he beat fourth-seeded Tomas Berdych 6-3, 6-4 in the first semi.
Murray broke Federer in the fifth game of the first set. He had a chance for another break in the first game of the second, but the top-ranked Swiss star managed to hold serve before a brief rain delay interrupted the match.
Murray broke again to go up 3-2, and the U.S. Open champion had to endure one more rain delay before serving out the match.
